Not exactly sure if this is an answer, but Lynx passes Japanese in
form input elements to my cgi scripts okay.

Just my $0.02, but as a Windows98/XP terminal emulator user, the main
problem is that, to my knowledge, there is no fixed-width unicode font
available.  The best I can do is the Japanese MS Gothic, which gives
me English, Japanese and some Cyrillic and Greek.  Thus, even if I have
Lynx display the raw UTF8, the terminal emulator has no way to present it.
